in the 20th century. don't tread on us. get off our well-armed backs. there's nothing you can do. of course there is. register all guns, license all gun owners. require stringent background checks. get tough on assault weapons of ankind. crack down on high capacity ammunition, as the president has now proposed. then, enforce the laws. yes, i know. determined killers will always find a way, but we can minimize the opportunities and scale back the scope of destruction. why do we accept the need for driver's licenses or submit to the sometimes humiliating body scans at airports? because it's the law, and deep down we know we're safer for the inconvenience of the law. good laws are hard to come by. civilization, just as hard. the rough and tumble of politics makes them so. but democracy aims for a moral order as just as humanly possible, which means laws that protect the weak and not just the strong. lest we forget. >>> we've seen throughout our history what happens when politics doesn't work, when democracy breaks down. the greatest, most heartbreaking problem was the failure toll solve slaver
's a fraught issue with artists. artists don't necessarily want to say "i was influenced by someone" but artists do learn from other artists. so i think the show is incredibly, i hope, nuanced and subtle about the kind of relationships between warhol and the idea that there's a kind of tension and the idea that john sort of approached warhol through german artists that that there are kind of cross currents that influence is -- it can be outright appropriation, it can be parody, it can be theft, it can be all kinds of things. so i really wanted the artist to be on the record in a very honest way about how they felt about this artist. >> and i think with someone the stature of warhol there's also an oedipal kind of path where even if you mov away from him you willnd up meeting him and sort of finding that you do live in his world and you -- and you -- there's no escaping him. >> it is in fact -- >> rose: this is a difficult question to ask but he's not necessarily number one in terms of impact or influence or most important. who else is in the category of those people in the second ha
and see is some sort of action so if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor. and i've asked senator reid to do this, put a bill on the floor that makes sure that taxes on middle-class families don't go up. that unemployment insurance is still available for 2 million people, and that lays the groundwork then for additional deficit reduction and economic growth steps that we can take in the new year. >> all of this still developing. and we will have more on all of it with mark shields and david brooks later in the program. >> also ahead >> warner: also ahead, between now and then; protesting a gang rape in india; mass producing high quality education and remembering general norman schwarzkopf. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the u.s. economy has dodged a potentially crippling strike at ports up and down the east coast and gulf coast at least, for now. the longshoremen's union agreed today to extend its existing contract by another month. that word came after the union and shipping lines work
, because now they were the accomplices of... of an executed criminal. >> the followers of jesus, who don't go away as they're supposed to when pilate does this, have to deal with that fundamental question of what does this mean that the one that we had all of these expectations about has been crucified? how do we deal with this, not merely the end of this life, but the shameful end of this life? >> the only place they can go, eventually, is into the hebrew scriptures, into their tradition, and find out, "is it possible that the elect one, the messiah, the righteous one, the holy one"-- any title they use of jesus-- "is it possible that such a one could be oppressed, persecuted, and executed?" they go into the hebrew scriptures, and, of course, what they find is that it's almost like a job description of being god's righteous one, to be persecuted and even executed. >> and the amazing thing is, they said, "hey, pilate's right. he was the king of the jews. and, moreover, god has vindicated this claim that he is the king of the jews by raising him from the dead." >> ( dramatized ): an angel
're not going away no matter what they do. >> ifill: they're being watched. i don't know that cory booker is being talked about for president but certainly chris christie ise they're being watched very y osely by national figures. >> absolutely. chris christie topped the lists. of contenders that republicans would like to see run. his favorability ratg especially post hurricane sanda is quite high in new jersey.eyou republicans would like to see someone who is a little more, i guess, not a southern governor. someone from the northeast try i think chris christie has an. better profile for that than mitt romney did. they would like to see him run cory booker, 2016 might be a little soon for him to if he gets in the senate, he cae serve out a term change and tryt again maybe 2020, 2024. >> ifill: i want to know what bruce springsteen has to say. whatever he says goes. thank you both. >> merry christmas. >> ifill: thank you. you can watch the first part ofd our discussion about the latesta scramble for senate seats in two states. find that on our politics page. now to

. >> the problem for any historian in trying to reconstruct the life of jesus is simply that we don't have sources that come from the actual time of jesus himself. >> the historian's task in understanding jesus and the jesus movement and early christianity is a lot like the archaeologist's task in excavating a tell. you peel back layer after layer after layer of interpretation, and what you always find is a plurality of jesuses. >> history isn't made to record the deeds of a person like jesus. jesus is very much like most people, statistically speaking, who have ever existed in the world: poor, obscure, no pretensions to royalty or distinction of any kind. they live under less than desirable conditions, and they die that way. there is nothing historically remarkable about that. billions of people pass through this veil of tears in exactly that way. >> we can tell the story by looking at the way the earliest christians themselves thought about jesus, by e wa they kept his memory alive, by the way that they told the story. >> narrator: central to the story is the fact that jesus was born a subject o

on don't ever touch anything having to do with my weapon, to wait a minute, we have obligations to others including those kids. >> kevin, what do you see? >> well, along this notion of, you know, who has to make the tough calls, in the budget debate, in the fiscal cliff and all of this, we're facing a profoundly moral debate about whose responsibility is it? do we balance the budget, make cuts on, you know, by cutting social programs for the poor? do it we do it by keeping tax rates low for the rich? and ultimately we have to decide as a community who has to foot the bill to get us back on solid financial ground. and so there's a lot of religious groups have said, "yes, we need to do something about our fiscal mess, but we cannot do it in an immoral way and we cannot do it in a way that punishes the people who can least afford it, and rewards the people who can." >> one of the things that's gonna be coming up is the realization more and more of what's in the obama healthcare plan as things begin to kick in. who wants to pick up on that, on the requirement that, for instance, that groups o

. >> a lot of people talk about value. the thing they don't talk about is affordability. so while you may think that sweater at barney's or nordstrom's is a value, at whatever price it is, you can't afford it. and affordability is something that is resonating a lot more than value. >> reporter: so the season is not expected to be a sparkling one for merchants, with gains in the low to mid single digits. discounters are expected to do better than luxury stores. but don't forget, it is the holidays, and christmas just wouldn't be the same without a few splurges. >> we kind of get in the spirit of shopping. we go, okay, okay one more, oh they'd really like that, he'd really like that-- and a little for myself, too. >> reporter: erika miller, nbr, new york. >> susie: don't let the fiscal cliff scare you away from buying stocks. that's the advice to investors from andy cross, the chief investment officer at the motley fool. tom hudson recently spoke with him, and began by asking if the s&p 500 will be higher or lower this time next year. >> that's a tough question. i'm not in the job of pickin
what? >> don't talk about it. do it. that's whas he used to say when he was an editor. the reason he loved acting so much is you could do things by talking, simply by talking on the stage you could see the reactions on the faces of your audience. you could make them laugh. you could make them cry. it took the time lag of publication and it crushed to a matter of less than a second. instead of sending out your words on the page and not knowing what was going to happen to them, you could see the effects of your words on the faces of your audience there and then. >> he called his performances like writing a book in company. >> charlie: i want to talk a minute about the public person too. when he came to america, very successful run as a lecturer and giving public performances. >> that's what he did. these enormous very arduous lecture tours that he undertook, he would like perform his greatest hits. he would do all the characters in different voices. including the female characters. is it nancy or the death of little nell? >> the violent death of nancy. he would perform and nobody seeme
the speaker and the president don't talk the negotiators do. >> warner: why late today did speaker boehner call for the house to reconvene on sunday? >> because he knows that there is going to be something probably to vote on and even if there's not the president has flown back, the senate is here, the country is watching. if you were the speaker of the house would you want your members to be seen as him on vacation zipping champagne on new year's eve and everybody else is in washington working. it's a combination of optics for sure, not wanting to be seen as off on vacation, but there is likely to be something that democrats muster to get voted on. it would have to probably get through the senate first but john boehner may need his members here. >> warner: now you heard mitch mcconnell refer to -- "we're happy to look at anything the president proposes." what is the president's role right now? >> well, the president ran on tax rates. the president right now, his role is knee deep, margaret. there have been other iterations of debt talks, supercommittee, where you saw the president try to
